~anonymous's review of OptumRx customer service

GetHuman: So how would you sum up your experience for GetHuman's OptumRx customer community? We'll censor any IDs, numbers, or codes and any inappropriate words here out of respect to the millions of other customers using this resource.
~anonymous: I am end stage COPD and have been without a daily medication needed to keep inflammation down. After calling and calling and doing most of the footwork for these people I finally got an answer, after they denied my medication because I don't have "severe" COPD. How much more severe do I need to be, "END STAGE COPD". As a result I have developed pneumonia and am still sick. This is a company is the absolute worst! Now I get to start the process again as long as my doctor says " severe" I will be approved. What a run around and a load of ****!!!!

~anonymous: For that I would say one out of five.
GetHuman: And finally- any advice for other OptumRx customers?
